Dell Inspiron Mini 10v: N270 CPU but a more crammed display

To get the price down under 200 quid, Dell has dropped the 10's 160GB hard drive for an 8GB SSD, replace the 1024 x 600 display with a 1024 x 576 model, and pre-loaded the mini laptop with Linux: Ubuntu 8.04, to be precise.

If you'd rather have XP, you can select the next model up. It's priced at £279 and includes a 160GB HDD. The base Mini 10 comes in at £299.

All 10s and 10vs come with 1GB of 533MHz DDR 2 memory, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and graphics powered by an integrated Intel GMA 950 core. ®
